9 Podcasts For Aspiring or Newbie Female Solopreneurs


I never knew that I would fall in love with podcasts.

I kept hearing more and more about podcasts in the freelancing world and it seemed like I was missing out on so much free value, so I decided to give them a listen. This was about a couple months before I left my 9-5 and now, I have no idea why I didn't start listening sooner.

Listening to so many inspiring entrepreneurs helped me in many ways. Below are the reasons the podcasts I've listed below were so impactful before actually taking the leap.

  • I realized even more that I was not alone in being unhappy at my day job

  • They gave me inspiration to pull through on really bad days

  • They made me realize that I was making the right decision to leave my job

  • I wasn't crazy for wanting to build up a business, be my own boss, and design my own life

So without further ado, here are my favorite podcasts that I would recommend for aspiring or newbie solopreneurs. But even if you don't fall into this category, you'll still find so much inspiration from these ladies and their guests!
